New Jersey Central's Blue

Blue Comet Train

The New Jersey Central's Blue Comet passenger train service operated from 1929 to 1941, on a route from the New York metropolitan area to Atlantic City, in the midst of the Great Depression. Despite this backdrop and stiff competition from other railroads, it survived and established an enduring legacy in the annals of New Jersey rails. This book contains memorable images, many from private archival photograph collections, showing the remarkable history of this classic train and of the hardworking and dedicated people who made it all possible. The legendary Blue Comet train no longer streaks through the pines of New Jersey. However, its memory still lives on through timeless images and the sustained efforts of New Jersey historical societies and preservation organizations that maintain its legacy.

Blue Comet Train

Invaluable book on the Central Railroad of New Jersey's famous Blue Comet train which ran for just over a decade from New York to Atlantic City. A glamorous idea which ran into the reality of the Depression and the expanding public highways, the Blue Comet was so lovely that Joshua Lionel Cowen, head of Lionel, used it to make one of their most elaborate standard gauge passenger sets. This book is divided into three parts -- the first is a detailed history of the line, explaining its origin, design, early success and ultimate failure. The second part is a discussion of the Blue Comet's rival, the Pennsylvania Railroad's Nelly Bly. The third section is a complete guide to modeling the train: how to create each of the cars (locomotive, passenger, dining, baggage, combine, and observation), mix the right paint colors, apply the decals, etc. There are illustrations on almost every page of completed models. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos. Includes maps, schematic car diagrams, timetables, advertisements and other ephemera. 60 pages.
